Blue, White & Classic Cars

My latest charity shop find is this blue and white dress. It is the length and style I like being quite modest compared with a lot of dresses on sale. It cost me £4.00 and goes well with my white sandals. It will be a useful addition to my summer wardrobe. The weather has been warm and dry in the UK during the last two weeks. We have seen pictures on our TV News of serious floods in France and Germany and feel very sorry for our blogger friends in that part of Europe.

We visited our local annual classic car show yesterday. We all love looking at classic cars and Hannah wanted to take some photos of cars for a school project of "life when granddad and grandma were children". The crowds made it difficult to take photos and required a lot of patience but she was pleased with the results.

We each picked our favourite cars and here are the results:-
My husband chose this magnificent Bentley which dated back to the late 1920s/early 1930s
Hannah chose this little Austin saloon from the early 1930s.
Henry chose this rare sky blue Austin convertible from the early 1950s.
This was my favourite - a Rover from the mid 1950s which had been owned by the same family for over 50 years and was in fantastic condition.
